FARINA¹, Juan et al. A case of balloon pulmonary angioplasty in chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. Insuf. card. [online]. 2017, vol.12, n.1, pp.44-49. ISSN 1852-3862.

Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension presents a curative treatment, with pulmonary endarterectomy being the established therapeutic option. However, balloon angioplasty to pulmonary arteries may be considered an alternative therapeutic option for patients with inoperable or residual disease after surgery. Herewith, we report the first case of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension treated with balloon pulmonary angioplasty in Argentina.

Keywords : Pulmonary endarterectomy; Balloon pulmonary angioplasty; Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.
